About Joseph
Local tutor;

Will travel to you, or we can use my studios located in Nassau, Suffolk and all 5 boroughs.

clients), full of success story after success story!

22 yrs teaching experience. I have sent thousands of children to Nyssma. Most of my students have scored; "Outstandings", (lvls 1-4), and A+'s, (lvls 5-6). Have gotten students

into All-County,

All State, and All National honor bands. This requires a ranked Nyssma level 6 score of 100.

I have prepared students for auditions to the finest music schools in the world, Julliard, The Curtis Institute, Berklee, etc.

I can help you develop the skills you need in order to achieve your musical goals. I believe a well rounded musician has more room to grow, and my experience in a variety of styles will allow me to help you do that. The lessons will cover technique, theory, musicality, ear training, and more. If desired we can work on improvisation and techniques for jazz and popular styles. Whatever your goals are, I'm here to help make it happen!

About Andrew
I have a Masters of Music Composition and over 30 years experience playing in professional situations. My knowledge of different genres gives me a unique perspective for teaching.
Over the years I've played piano jazz in cocktail lounges, drummed for numerous rock bands, played solo shows singing and accompanying myself on guitar, and I've also performed with orchestras, big bands, and stage shows. I'm classically trained as a percussionist, and I studied jazz piano at the University of Kentucky before finishing my degree at Brooklyn College.

I can make the piano, drumset, or guitar approachable for traditional and non-traditional students alike. I offer a strong foundation in technique, theory, and musicality, and I can teach you popular music styles and improvisation as well. I look forward to working with you!

About Dan
I began taking music lessons when I was eight. My teacher inspired a passion for music and learning in me that has brought perpetual fulfillment and joy to my life.

In college I earned degrees in both classical piano and guitar. I subsequently toured the United States for six months, playing music in myriad of venues -- classical, rock, folk and blues. After returning to California, I taught music in a Bay Area high-school.

I recently relocated to San Diego and am teaching private music lessons to students of all skill levels. I want my students to reach their full musical potentials in whatever capacity best aligns with their goals.

My 9yr old son Paxton has been taking in-house piano lessons from Jonathan for over a year. Pax has developed a passion for learning how to play the piano, read & even create music after taking Jonathan's classes.

Pax and I are so very grateful for Jonathan. He is the best piano teacher and role model for my son. Pax looks so forward to his visit with him each week. Jonathan is a knowledgeable, energetic and a fun teacher who imparts good techniques and at the same time instills a lifelong appreciation of music. He is amazing with children and he creates an environment that is friendly and inspiring."

I would highly recommend Jonathan. He is a real gem!!

I am beyond blessed to have Jonathan as an instructor for both solo and ensemble performances. He understands music and knows what to listen for and give feedback in ways that are very encouraging! His patience with me as a beginning student definitely helped boost my confidence as a musician while helping me advance my skills as a pianist. He is an incredibly gifted musician and his knowledge of various music genres is so much fun! I look forward to learning more from him trust that he is capable of taking me as far as I dream to go. Definitely the best and most capable teacher I've ever met, and would encourage anyone who is even a little bit interested in music to check him out. You won't be disappointed.

Jonathan worked with my limited availability and went out of his way to meet me in my home. He is very knowledgeable and explains things in a way you can easily understand! His dedication and passion for his gift inspires you to see music in a completely different way. As a vocalist, Jonathan taught me how to interpret the music in my head onto paper and opened the door to an improved relationship with my fellow musicians. If you're looking for someone who knows music and has the patience and dedication to help you on your journey to being a successful artist/musician Jonathan is your guy!

Carrollton, VA

One of the most important things for me will be garnering the students interest in Piano. I will not make a student play step by step, level by level piano books with cheesy melodies. This is the reason I lost interest in the piano and quit in 7th grade and didn't pick it up again till I was 18. The most important thing when teaching a student is fostering their interest. If the student is completely disinterested he will not pay attention and will not practice. And if the student does not pay attention and practice, he/she will not learn much. Figuring out what type of music my student likes to play and listen to will be my first task. After that it is simply a matter of teaching student pieces of increasing difficulty level. I have a thorough understanding of music theory and composition and if the student is interested I will teach that as well.

About Richard
Hello my name is Richard Schroff and I am new to teaching piano (at least officially, for money). With me the emphasis will be on making things fun and enjoyable. Doing what you want to do, playing what you want to play and not forcing anything on you that you really don't like. A lot of teachers don't seem to realize that the most important thing you can to do to teach your student is to make things interesting. If the interest isn't there then the student won't pay attention, won't want to practice and won't learn much. My first task will be identifying what types of music you like to listen to and play. Once we identify this you can start learning the piano by focusing on the types of music you enjoy playing. I will also teach you music theory and composition if you are interested, as I have a thorough understanding of both. As for my
piano/music background I started playing piano when I was very young, about 8 or so and continued playing until 7th grade when I quit for a while. I quit playing because of the way I was taught by using level by level books with cheesy melodies that I was uninterested in. I started playing the piano again when I was 18 and was inspired by a Beethoven song. I quickly became obsessed with the piano finding out that I clearly have a natural talent for the piano that I never knew I had before. I soon became very skilled and a rather advanced pianist and would play composers such as Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin, Liszt and Rachmaninoff. At the level of skill I am at now I can easily play any Mozart or Beethoven sonata right away and can play virtually any piece at least at a reasonable speed. I have taken several Music Theory classes in college but have studied it more completely on my own and have composed a small amount of piano pieces. I feel I am good enough to teach some fairly advanced students, but because I am new to teaching the piano I would prefer you to be a beginner or intermediate level student. Thank You.

I have been teaching for over 8 years. I've worked with ages as young as three up to adults in their 50's. We all learn best when we are engaged and having fun. I'm only interested in teaching you songs, techniques, or exercises that help you achieve your personal goals and play on your interests to strengthen your skills. That means that if you are excited about technically challenging classical literature and want to challenge yourself, I will give you finger strengthening exercises and music theory along with a variety of pieces. If you want to just have fun and be able to play for your friends, let's find your favorite song and make an arrangement of it that you can have fun learning.

I have experience teaching classical, improvisation, composition, music theory, pop music, and basic jazz. Let's find your favorite and play with it till you can play it beautifully!
